Imagine you didn’t trust the solidity of objects around you.

Imagine you didn’t trust the solidity of objects around you. The chair you sit on? The Pauli Exclusion Principle is nice enough to keep working and keeping your body from going through the chair, through the floor, through the ground and to the center of gravity on the Earth.

The Earth is nice enough to keep spinning around the sun and not going towards the center of the Sun.

The Sun nice enough to keep rotating around the center of the galaxy, far away and not go towards the black hole at the center.

The galaxy is nice enough to stay in the local galactic cluster…

And the weak force in your body are nice enough to keep you from going radiative. And the strong force is nice enough to keep the nucleus together.

Gravity is nice enough to give a center wherever there’s mass.

And chemical bonds are nice enough to keep doing their thing.

Yet, none of it has to be that way.

That’s the kind of stuff that keeps me focused. There’s other things as well.. but being excessively aware of ‘how things work’ you realize how they *might not* work… You gotta be connected to a “something” that you trust in, lest you get torn apart.
